UHNM Charity’s County Hospital, Stafford, Fundraising Appeal has again been chosen as the charity partner for this year’s Stafford 10k. The event, which takes place on 23 September 2018, has quickly established itself as one of the ‘must do’ road runs in the area since it began in 2016. All those who sign up to represent the Appeal will be fundraising to provide local cancer patients with a large courtyard garden to enjoy whilst in hospital receiving their chemotherapy treatment.

Adela Appleby, Head of UHNM Charity, said: “We’re obviously delighted that our County Hospital, Stafford, Fundraising Appeal has been chosen as the charity partner for this year’s Stafford 10k. The Stafford 10k is now one of the most eagerly anticipated events on the calendar and both our staff and supporters have really taken it to their hearts. The space they are fundraising for will transform the Oncology, Haematology Treatment Unit’s courtyard so that patients will be able to leave the clinical area and enjoy a very tranquil setting.

“Over the past year it has been very heart-warming hearing about the reasons why people choose to run this event for us. People have told us that they themselves are a cancer survivor or someone close to them is. Some people say they are running in memory of someone close to them, or that they want to mark a milestone such as a birthday or event. Others are doing it because they just love running, or that they’ve lost or are losing a lot of weight and they have been inspired to take part by others. I think we’ll see many of those who took part last year do so again and I hope to see many more new faces take up the challenge to support their local hospital.”

Everyone who agrees to raise a minimum of £60 for the Appeal will receive a free place. Participants can fundraise for other services and wards at UHNM if they wish. There are a limited number of places and there's a high demand for them, so anyone interested in taking part should complete an entry form back and send it to back to UHNM Charity immediately.
